Diagnosed As A Newborn Baby
by Ellen-A Mother
My baby was fine until he was 4 months old. That is when he got his first cold. After two weeks of getting worse, losing weight, nursing every two hours (ouch), and becoming lethargic, he was finally admitted to the hospital. The doctors there ran every test they could think of and finally diagnosed him with Type I diabetes. He was in a classic stage of diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA).
